Funding for an Equal Future is a FREE one day training event aimed at giving LGBT groups and organisations increased knowledge of funding and the skills to successfully apply for funding.
The LGBT sector is historically underfunded and under resourced, but this coupled with an economic downturn is creating new stresses on an already fragile sector. While there are many success stories, many LGBT groups and organisations need to work harder and smarter to secure new and diversified funding.
The 2009 sector survey carried out by the Equality Network highlighted the key challenges and needs of the LGBT sector in Scotland. When asked the areas of information or training that organisations would find useful, over 60% said producing successful funding applications. This mirrors sentiment in the sector as a whole, where funding an equal future has become increasingly important.
This training is aimed at any LGBT organisation or group in Scotland. Evaluation Support Scotland will be on hand to facilitate some of the training sharing their expertise. Places on this course are FREE, and travel bursaries are available for those where travel costs would be a barrier. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis.
Date: Saturday 5th December, 2009
Time: 10 am – 5pm
